Messiaen: No. 13 ("Noël") from Vingt Regards, the very first chord:

right hand: G-D#-E-G#
left hand: Bb-F-B

(That's just one example. Messiaen's music has lots of unusual chords.)


I have an ice cream. I cannot mail it, for it will melt.

One of the early "kiss my shiny piano b***"-chords:

LH: F# B(H) D E# G
RH(+octave): E# G B D G


x9 in FFF.

Guess where it's from, don't go looking in Messiaen or whatever wink .
